Tom Pope: 27 goals and counting for Port Vale

Tom Pope: 27 goals and counting for Port Vale

The winner will be announced at the Football League Awards gala ceremony at The Brewery in London on Sunday.

The final shortlist was drawn up from votes cast by the league's managers.

Bantams skipper Jones, 35, is in his first season at Valley Parade, but has been a virtual ever-present in the engine room for Phil Parkinson's side this season and was instrumental in their historic giant-killing run to Wembley in the Capital One Cup final.

Grecians striker Cureton, 37, has struck 20 goals this season for Paul Tisdale's promotion-hopefuls to leave him second in the goalscoring charts.

Striker Pope, 27, is the division's leading scorer with 27 goals in all competitions - 25 of them coming in league action - although he has failed to score in his last 11 outings for Vale.

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
